    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Ramsey's jigsaw came closer to completion when Alan Ball made his debut, showing the energy and enthusiasm that was to make him such a vital member of the 1966 World Cup squad. Barry Bridges, Chelsea's jet-paced centre-forward, headed England's equaliser after the Yugoslavs had taken a fifteenth minute lead. England were the first foreign side to avoid defeat in Yugoslavia in a full international. "It is the proudest moment of my life," said Ballie in his Clitheroe Kid high-pitch voice after Ramsey had selected him. "I have dreamed of playing for my country ever since I first kicked a ball. There can be no greater honour. I would willingly play for nothing." And he meant it. No prouder player ever pulled on the white jersey of England.
